Fox says, “If there’s anything that working with CBD oil has shown me is that there is always hope. Even for the hopeless.”
Parkinson’s, which affects some 10 million people worldwide, is the second-most common neurological disorder after Alzheimer’s disease.
A 2018 study found that CBD helped in the reduction of psychotic symptoms and sleep patterns of Parkinson’s patients.
While CBD wasn’t found to improve motor function, it did significantly improve quality of life.
Fox, who created the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research, even featured a blog about the benefits of medical marijuana for Parkinson’s disease, citing studies where CBD was found to be helpful for Parkinson’s patients.
Olivia Wilde is another well-known actress who has also praised Lord Jones CBD. She recently had the following to say to the New York Times:
“Another thing I’m a huge believer in, in terms of body care: I’ve been using this body lotion that has CBD from marijuana. It’s called Lord Jones, and I discovered it through my friends in L.A. Recently I did a play on Broadway for six months, and my body was wrecked. My neck was really tight. The CBD has relaxing benefits, and the idea is to avoid using too many painkillers.”*
The Celebrity Status of CBD
It’s no secret that CBD’s become one of the hottest natural health trends to hit the market possibly ever.
Projected to be a $22 billion market by 2022, CBD sales aren’t showing any signs of slowing down any time soon.
And celebrities, forever on the forefront of all things trending, have embraced the CBD market as much as the rest of the world.
Faith Popcorn, futurist and founder of BrainReserve, says the CBD trend “is getting more glamorous, more designed, more stylish.”
According to AdAge, “In Los Angeles, there’s a growing movement toward the CBD ‘power lunch’, which even for L.A. seems extreme. At downtown restaurant Spring, three CBD-infused courses will cost you $37.”
Los Angeles, however, is a city known for being extreme.
And those who embrace the lifestyles of the rich and famous are touting CBD to be the next big thing.
Capobianco says, “Everyone comes to this conversation with their own preconceived notions and their own experiences. We’re asking people to take a gigantic leap of faith with our products. We keep it real. All the attention we’ve received is earned. No celebrity has spoken on our behalf for any reason other than they use the product and they love it.”
From rubbing CBD on their feet for red carpet relief to using CBD to help with stress, anxiety, and more, celebs are discovering CBD is just about famous as they are.
